There's already a lot of skepticism behind CBD--and we don't blame you. there's a lot of brand out there that dilute their products with coconut oil, water, and ingredients that simply don't help. On top of that convincing people that CBD could potentially help their furry friends, is another challenge.
Here's some facts, studies, and myths to help you be a more informed buyer for your pet.
Benefits may include:
1) Pain Alleviation
Whether your dog is injured, or simply getting older, CBD proves to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent for pets. In a study published in the journal PAIN, CBD was observed to significantly help pooches with osteoarthritis (joint pain).
2) Anxiety Relief
Anxiety in pets could include manifest in many different situations:
- long car rides
- separation anxiety
- vet visits
CBD is often marketed as a calming, anxiety reducing miracle for humans, but it may have similar effects for pets. Research has shown that dogs that took a low dose of CBD for 2 weeks were shown to be more calm and playful than those who did not.
